Working from Home is taking it's toll on our Backs
Great article from Professor De Carvalho! I like how she suggests mixing the location of work from home and taking frequent breaks. The best break is a walk break. It’s really important to allow your hands to move freely while you walk. It helps because the natural motion of walking is a great way to re-set correct movement patterns in your spine. Holding a phone or a dogs leash won’t give you the same neurological benefit unless you can keep those arms moving with your gait in a slightly exaggerated way. Also, be sure to LOOK UP! Look at the horizon, not for quarters on the ground! Your head is heavy for the neck and it’s designed to be looking for gazelles to eat not for ants.
